"While women in precolonial Philippines were often designated to the venerable position of the babaylan, it was not an uncommon occurrence for them to pick up arms and become warriors.”
- Perry Gil S. Mallari, The Filipina as Ritualistic and Warrior

Three weeks ago, my friend Joe lost his father to a long battle with cancer. Earlier this week, Joe’s mother got in a fatal car accident which resulted in her death. Joe is a senior in high school and most of his money was already going towards paying bills for his family. Unfortunately, now he has no more close family and has the responsibility of paying for the funerals for both of his parents.
I know most of you probably won’t be able to help, but I knew it couldn’t hurt to spread the word. My school and community are trying to come together to raise money to help him out with the funeral expenses.
If there is any chance you are able to make any sort of financial donation to helping him out, please contact me on my personal blog for more information. Something like a $10-20 donation could help tremendously, but please remember that even the smallest amounts (even $1 if that’s all you can do) will be greatly appreciated.
Even if you can’t donate money, it would be wonderful if you could spread the word. Prayers and positive vibes sent his way could also be a great help. This is a tragic thing for someone at his age to be going through. Please do anything you can to help whether it’s donations, spreading the word, or prayers for him.
This kid is still in school, he shouldn’t have all of this fall on him. No one should have all of this fall on them.
This kid should be worrying about prom and finals and college, not paying for both of his parents funerals.

pg-chan: Oh god, oh god, oh goddddd~~~ *dies* That black one, though!!!
Yellow flats? I don’t even know of those. Yeesh, I’m feeling this so hard though. I gave up shopping for Lent, and all the Spring sales are driving me maaaaaaad DX
Oh, haha, I’m totally on a yellow-as-accent-color kick right now since almost all of my clothes have become neutral/gray. 8) Wardrobe looks like a page from TTX, hahahahaha~
So, they’re theeeese (but this photo is off; it’s a warmer yellow and a touch darker), and they look underwhelming in the photo but VIVIENNE WESTWOOD SHOES, MAN. When you put them on, they’re so flattering and the place on my toes where the whole Melissa line is cut and sits is the best. It’s the best, I can’t explain, but I love it with my patent skull pumps:
(Bonus: I’ve had these for like 4-5ish years and they still smell like bubble gum and the soles look like I’ve never worn them even though I totally do when possible~~ 8| )
Also, when we first met, if someone’d told me you and I would be having these weird clothing conversations I would have thought it too good to be true. ♥
Hnnngh, the pair of yellow Vivienne Westwood flats that I’ve been pining over for almost a year that they don’t sell anymore because they’re a few seasons old is on sale in my size, only one pair in stock at all anywhere online, and for $100 which is cheap for Vivienne but how do I even ask for these when I’m not even workingggg~~
(I want a sexy and durable pair of flats for Japan since I’m gonna be there for like 20 daysssss and want to feel fabulous in Asia, where it’s so easy to make westerners feel like total sad hobos as per all of my childhood experiences.)
